Vintage Lesney Matchbox TV Service Van (1963) #62-B Near mint NM+ Made England

This is a Lesney Matchbox T.V. Service Van. It is “Series No. 62.” Charlie Mack number 62-B. It was issued in 1963, and was made inEngland. This vehicle is from theRegular Wheels series. It is variety number 2. It has a cream body, blue windows, a red ladder (the three TV sets and antenna are in the vehicle – access is from a sliding white door at the back) “Rentaset” decals, and black plastic wheels. This vehicle is in at least near mint condition, with the only real imperfection being some wear on the front bumper with one or two other pinpoint-sized pieces of paint loss elsewhere (see photos).

I'm selling the last part of my vintage Lesney Matchbox collection, which has been undisturbed a climate-controlled environment for thirty years. My parents bought me these cars at the Buffalo/Niagara Falls (NY) Toy Shows in 1980, 1981, and 1982. I played with these vehicles only a few times (and I was always very careful with my toys!) and only inside, before putting them away semi-permanently. The vehicles I am selling now have been moved (by me personally) only twice since my Mom carefully packaged them up in 1983. They were moved once in 1992, and again in 2006. You won't find Matchbox cars in better condition than these unless they're still in their original box!
